Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Get Enlightened
"Everyone in this world cannot get enlightened
at one time. If they did, that would mean that
there would be no more world; the world's
purpose would be over. The world will always
be a mixture of good and bad and of people at
different stages in their evolution. Just like
different grades in a school, not all students
are in the same grade. The purpose of the world
is to shape people. More and more people will
be coming into the world, and the world will be
shaping them, reforming their minds. It's like
a big factory. So, don't worry about others; think
about yourself. If you really want to get enlightened,
get enlightened. Probably, when you get enlightened,
you might help a few others.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
- "When even one virtue becomes our nature, the mind becomes clean and tranquil. Then there is no need to practice meditation; we will automatically be meditating always."
Sri Gurudev Swami Satchidananda
